ISLAMABAD -- Imran Khan's ex-wife Reham has claimed that she had asked the cricketer-turned-politician for a wedding anniversary gift in 2015 but he divorced her instead.

Reham, while speaking to Geo news, said she had jokingly mentioned on 31 October last year that she wanted a present ahead of the couple's wedding anniversary. "He divorced me instead," she said.

Taking a swipe at the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman, Reham said, "Let's pray he doesn't do something like this with Pakistan."

Imran on Sunday had reiterated his resolve to shut down Islamabad on 2 November and instructed all party workers throughout the country to reach his residence ahead of the planned lockdown of the capital at any cost.

Nearly 10 months after Imran tied the knot with TV journalist Reham, his marriage ended in divorce in 2015.

Imran's marriage to Reham was his second after his first marriage with English heiress Jemima Goldsmith for nine years that ended in divorce in June, 2004. Imran and Jemima have two sons from their marriage.
